When it comes to celebrating Pride, the month of June is only just a beginning. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is committed to remaining an inclusive and safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals throughout the year to further a shared mission of ongoing support and visibility. We’re eager to lift up local communities, events, collaborations, and art from our collection by members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

For Pride month, we’re excited to celebrate the evolving nature of LGBTQIA+ identity, using the spirit of diversity as our guiding principle. See below for more information about what’s happening on our campus this June.
